Farmer Albeiro Calambas
We're back with another lot from our main man, Albeiro Calambas.
Caravela helped us link up with one of the producers who contribute to Andino which is the coffee we purchase the most of.
Twenty years ago, Albeiro decided to start producing coffee on his own. He found no one, however, that would teach him new or innovative ways to produce coffee and so he just followed what he had seen his father do when he was a child. Ten years ago, Albeiro found out about a cooperative in Bruselas, a small town located in the municipality of Pitalito, called Café Andino. He took a sample of his coffee there and returned home to await their feedback. A few hours later, they called him, wanting to know exactly what he was doing to his coffee. He simply replied that he picked it and did the regular post-harvest process that he has always done. To this, all they told him was that the coffee tasted delicious and to keep up what he was currently doing. This small but rewarding piece of feedback was all Albeiro needed to realise that his farm, with its favourable altitude, had great potential to produce specialty coffee.
Albeiro decided not to expand his farm, he is comfortable with his two hectares and knows that keeping it this way means he can concentrate on proper management and quality processing.
